Hi Antone,

We need more specific information; in particular, can you explain in more
detail what uou mean by turning a date into seconds?

Distance is something that we measure, but to do the measurement, we need
a point of reference.  Are you trying to count the number of seconds since
03/01/2003, or 01/01/2003, or 01/01/1970, or 01/01/0001, or...?

Talk to you later!
